It looks like the Iphone 5 will not be able to support simultaneous voice and data with the new all in one LTE chip! Simultaneous Voice and Data had been a big selling point for AT&T on their previous phones. A Verizon spokesperson said “The Iphone 5 was designed to allow customers to place a voice call on the Verizon wireless network, while letting customers access the internet over the WIFI.” AT&T had confirmed to TheVerge its version of the Iphone 5 will support simultaneous voice and data at slower speeds. Sprint has also confirmed that the feature will not work on their version. This is in contradiction to all the other LTE devices on Verizon’s network which can do simultaneous Voice and Data. Just something else to consider.
Is this feature all that important to you? I have found it useful when waiting on hold, or looking something up for someone who is on the line.
